Madison County Assistant Clerk of Court

A former Madison County assistant Clerk of Court has been arrested on embezzlement charges.

Tara Nix is charged with one count of felony embezzlement by a government official.

She's accused of taking more than $96,000 in court funds between October 2016 and March 2017.

District Attorney R. Seth Banks said he was asked by the Madison County Clerk of Superior Court Mark Cody back in March to investigate discrepancies that were found during a routine audit.

Banks asked the State Bureau of Investigations (SBI) to open an investigation looking into the matter and said the investigation resulted in Nix being served with a warrant .

Nix is currently out on a $50,000 bond. Her first court date is scheduled for May 23, 2017. The SBI is continuing the investigation.
